Socotra Island, floating in the Indian Ocean south of Yeman, is one place that should be on everyone's adventure travel list.

The island of Socotra is a place like no other. About 50,000 people live on the island, but it is famous for its bizarre plant life, half of which is found nowhere else on earth.

The desert rose seems to need no roots, and looks like an elephant's leg in bloom.

The dragon's blood tree.

The cucumber tree, which is fact distantly related to the lowly cucumber.

The art of teapot blowing. My take: these people need jobs ... or a psychiatrist.

In searching for the porch picture, I came across this picture someone took of a mountain lion climbing onto their porch during a snowstorm. That would make me think twice about wandering around in the yard after dark.

Cap and Trade is dead, dead, dead, thank God. Next, lets kill socialized health care.

Global warming scientists emails hacked, and we learn that they were twisting the data to get to the conclusion that there was global warming. Not only that, it appears they were conspiring to damage the careers of non believing scientists who challenged their lies. This is probably the beginning of the end of the global warming hoax.
